In small bowl, combine chili seasoning, cumin, onion and garlic powders, salt and pepper. In a large skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with wooden spoon, for 5 minutes or until no longer pink. Degrease pan, add spice mixture and black beans, and continue cooking for 2 minutes.
Divide lettuce among bowls. Cover with ground beef topping, then garnish with tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado and cheddar cheese. Serve the bowls sprinkled with the corn chips (See recipe) and garnished with sour cream and coriander, if desired.
A good trick
Sprinkle the avocado slices with a little lime juice. In addition to preventing them from turning black, lime enhances their taste.
